Today we have a #dailydetail with a difference, as we announce the latest creation from the team at MSO Bespoke at the #DubaiMotorShow. Based on a Performance spec McLaren #720S this new commission features a unique Zenith Black and gold satin paint finish, and gold finished wheels and interior details. One of the hardest parts of the build was the decal on the aero deck rear wing, which took over 30 man hours to perfect. It’s Arabic script styled to look like the Dubai skyline, but for those of you who cannot read Arabic, it’s also a hidden quote from our founder, Bruce McLaren: It Reads: “Life is measured in achievement, not in years alone.” We think that sums the 720S up perfectly.

Top Cars That Made it to the News

Another car ranked as a top mention by news accounts, this time it’s Made in UAE. Probably, the Devel 60 gained its popularity from the previous supercar Devel 16, as well as the fact that it is totally made locally.
